Cyclone Harold has battered a number of Pacific Nations in the last week.

A state of emergency was declared in Tonga which experienced gusts of up to 150km/h. This cut power and downed trees across main roads. 

In Vanuatu, 160,000 people have been impacted by the cyclone. However, due to the global pandemic, no foreigners will be allowed in to help with the recovery.

In Fiji, tens of thousands of people in Fiji marked the Easter holiday weekend without electricity. The power supply to almost 80 percent of homes in the country is yet to be restored.

Fiji’s Prime Minister Frank Bainimarama said that “between tropical Cyclone Harold and the COVID-19 pandemic our economy and our people have been dealt two body blows to start the year.”
